A great way to break loose the crank shaft pulley bolt is to get a 1/2" breaker bar and a 19mm 1/2"socket hook it up make sure to handle of the breaker bar is on the driver side then put the end of it to the ground and crank over your engine for a split second and the momentum from the srater will break the bolt loose...............good luck getting it by hand or impact gun, this way i described is most effective and extremely easy........... the handle of the breaker bar has to be sturdy posted onto the cement before u turn the motor over because if not u may have a disaster with a fly breaker bar.......... the bolt loosens counter clock wise ---------DRE85mkll owner
the crankshaft gear located behind the harmonic balancer has threads inside the gear to accept a threaded puller. i went to home depot and purchased a one and a half inch pipe nipple about four inches long. drilled two hole at one end of nipple and installed a bolt in each hole for the claws on my puller to grab. the pipe nipple will screw right into thr crank gear. grab bolts on pipe nipple with puller and wrench against the crankshaft and remove the gear the same way as the harmonic balancer

You have to get a pulley puller of the appropriate size. Without a pulley you have no chance safely to remove it. Be careful do not deform the pulley it's not that hard as you can think.
great way to free some weight more HP 5-10!
To remove a crank shaft pulley you need to first jack up the car. Next, remove the bold holding the crack shaft pulley in place and remove the unit. Reverse direction to put the new crank shaft pulley on your car.
On most newer cars, the crank pulley is one piece with the harmonic balancer.... Remove it with a harmonic balancer puller.
The timing marks on a 1991 Toyota Tercel are on the crank pulley. They are located on the front of the pulley and under the cam.
if battery is ok chech netural saftyswitch
After removing the right front tire and fender liner, you remove the serpentine belt. You then remove the crank bolt and use a puller to remove the pulley.After removing the right front tire and fender liner, you remove the serpentine belt.

remove all belts,tensioners etc, remove pulley bolt, use HARMONIC BALENCER PULLEY to remove - DO NOT USE NORMAL PULLEY REMOVER - must be pulled from center of pulley not from outer edge
The crank position sensor is behind the crank pulley. You need to remove the pulley, remove the plastic shield and remove two of the lower front cover bolts. Then you can remove the crank sensor. This proceedure is more complicated than it sounds. Check out the following website for a cam install and scroll down to where it talks about removing the harmonic balancer (crank pulley) http://www.mccgp.com/upgrades/caminstall/caminstall.php Hope this helps.

To remove the window crank on the 1992 Toyota Paseo, first pry off the interior door panel. Then, access the screw that holds the crank in place. Remove the screw and the handle will come loose.
Loosen the 18mm bolt about 4 or 5 mm and give the bolt a good wack and the pulley should pop. Then remove the bolt and pulley.
It is below the steering pump oil reservoir down by the block, follow the short belt on the bottom of the crank pulley and it will be on the left hand side of the motor when standing in front of the car.
Remove anything that may obstruct pulley (belt, wheel, etc.).Your best bet is to use an impact gun to remove bolt in center of pulley (turn counter-clockwise and use safety goggles).After loosening bolt you need to use a harmonic puller to get pulley off crankshaft (do not use impact gun on puller).Tip:Unthread bolt about 1/4 inch from crank pulley then use puller, loosen puller and remove crank bolt a few more turns off crankshaft, then use puller again to slide crank pulley off crank again, keep repeating until it is off.
disconnect the battery, remove the bolt in the center of the pulley, then use a harmonic balancer tool to remove it
Impact gun/wrench and a puller
Removing the crank pulley requires an impact wrench

Im not sure which direction the bolt turns to remove the pulley...the crank shaft turns in clock wise direction when engine is running.
In most cases the crank pulley bolts to the balancer so the crank pulley would not be the same as the harmonic balancer.
remove the front passenger wheel, remove the crank pulley, remove the crank sensor. you may need a GM special tool to remove certain bolts
the crank sensor is located behind the main accessory drive pulley which is installed at the end of the crankshaft you have to remove the pulley and the plastic cover that covers the timing belt

Front cover just above the crank pulley, behind the crank sensor, 1 wire light grey plug.
To the right of the crank shaft pulley. You should see a single black wire going up from the pulley. All you need is a 10MM socket to remove it.
